War Zombies

November 6th, 2009

During last night’s class, we learned that Whitman wrote a “zombie” poem about the dead soldiers who haunted him.  This reminded me of a short Japanese film “The Tunnel,” which I watched for a course last spring.  I was able to find it online.  I will let you view it for yourself, but in a nutshell it’s about one soldier coming back from the war and how he is haunted by the men who died while under his command.  It is roughly 15 minutes long, and is in Japanese with English subtitles.  You’ll probably notice a dream motif; that’s because the film is part four of an eight part film Dreams.
